What if human beings needed to hibernate during the winter like many other mammals do? Think of all the winter sports we wouldn't have developed. You don't see bears snow skiing or tobogganing do you? They sleep through all that.
If humans had to hibernate I imagine they would do it like this bear, in style! Actually, I know quite a few people who would be quite comfortable in the above scenario.
If you had to hibernate, other than food and water, what would you absolutely want to have with you during your winter 'sleep'? Of course we would all need our phones and internet access, but what unique item would you just have to have to get you through the winter?
